The chair that grows with the child
(The Philippine Star) - September 18, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The Tripp Trapp Chair, created in 1972 by the designer Peter Opsvik, has never been better. In 1972, revolution was a fact. Back then no one had seen anything like the Tripp Trapp, and almost 40 years later it is still unique: the only child’s chair that can take you from baby to adult, keeping you secure and comfortable all the way.

The Tripp Trapp designer’s inspiration came from watching his own young son, Tor, struggle to find a comfortable position to sit in at their family table. Having grown out of his old-fashioned highchair, but still far too small to sit on an adult’s chair, Tor was left dangling his legs and struggling to reach the table.?What do you do when your feet don’t reach the floor and you can’t shift your weight when you feel the need? Well, you can’t move the chair down to the ground, because then your elbows won’t reach the table. So, how about moving the floor up to meet your feet? That’s what the Tripp Trapp does, by providing a stable footrest that supports a child’s feet and allows it to sit at the correct height, its elbows in height with the table, in comfort and security. Then there’s the problem of your upper body not being supported because the backrest is too far away. The Tripp Trapp® chair’s unique depth adjustability solves that one, meaning that no matter how big or small your baby, his or her feet and back can be perfectly supported. Not only does this chair grow with your child, it can adjust to custom fit your child’s body, enabling comfortable and natural ergonomic sitting.

Tripp Trapp is made from cultivated Beechwood and comes varnished in a selection of colors (green, cherry, grey, yellow, red, walnut brown?and turquoise).

Stokke’s Tripp Trapp high chair is available at Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La Plaza, and Alabang.
